the Rat

Built as a means of dominating battlefields featuring a mixture of surfaces, the Rat is a small, yet powerful hovercraft! Featuring front-mounted rotary blades to clear vegetation and four chain guns, it can take and hold moist ground easily! It has an m.s. of 10, and these characteristics:

Body Armor (s): featuring a titanium-reinforced, pivoting canopy, the Rat provides its sole occupant considerable protection from injury. While inside the vehicle, its operator benefits from intensity 8, or +2, protection against conventional assaults.

Chain Guns (a): the Rat features four linked chain guns, two on each side of the vehicle's cockpit. Though they can only fire straight ahead, they inflict one's Agility +8 in damage when firing short bursts, or their Agility +9 in damage when fired in a continuous fashion.

Cobra-band Radio (i): Cobra gear uses a communication system of its own, not beholden to conventional broadcast standards. The Rat in particular has a transceiver which operates with intensity 5 range (25 miles), and also benefits from intensity 9 signal encryption.

Flak Rotors (i): these offensive devices are designed to stymie aircraft working against the Rat. They can be launched at vehicles in the air as a direct, physical assault, inflicting intensity 10 slashing damage when they collide with their targets.

Levitation / Propulsion (a): featuring jet-powered turbo engines and aerodynamic vortex chargers, the Rat can glide upon a cushion of air! It can merely hover in place or blast forward with up to intensity 2 ground speeds, achieving up to sixty miles per hour over clear terrain!

Slicer Blades (s): the Rat has two of these weapons, mounted under the front corners of the vehicle. These spinning barbs can easily slice and dice softer targets in front of the Rat, whether plant or animal, and inflict intensity 8 slashing damage on physical contact.
